Spinach: Use fresh or frozen spinach. If you use ice, make sure you squeeze it properly. If you use fresh, cook it in the pan first and then squeeze it out.

SAUCE: Applying cream cheese to the sauce means no need for roux. Spreading hot cream cheese will work as well (like vegetables and garlic) but it won’t be too big.

To stretch the sauce for a large crowd, whisk in the heavy cream and allow to boil for a few minutes before adding the parmesan cheese.

PASTA: Any medium pasta works. Penne, farfalle, and rotini are good choices. This sauce works well with ravioli filled with cheese.

Great Pasta Diet Tips
Be sure to salt the pasta water for the best taste.
Frozen spinach can be replaced with fresh spinach. Cook 1 lb of fresh spinach in a non-stick pan until dry. Cool slightly and press dry.

Drain the spinach before adding to the pan to remove excess moisture.
For a smooth sauce, melt the cheese cream before adding the broth.
Do not wash the pasta, this will help the sauce stick to it.
